ZOO Digital Becomes Approved Aggregator for Major US Online Library Lender
ZOO Digital has announced that it has become an official aggregator for hoopla digital, providing a fast and efficient way for independent TV and movie makers, distributors and studios to deliver their content directly to hoopla’s online lending library.
Three online platforms have adopted ZOO’s aggregation services this year alone. Global online retailer Apple recently approved ZOO as an aggregator for TV series. Another major TV and movie streaming service selected ZOO to become a preferred supplier for subtitling. hoopla’s dynamic service enables consumers to borrow digital video, music, eBooks, audiobooks and comics from mobile devices and desktop browsers by signing in using a library card from participating public library systems.
ZOO has developed its own revolutionary cloud-based content management platform, ZOOstudio which ensures compliant, high quality and efficient digital delivery. The groundbreaking system validates packages to meet hoopla’s technical, metadata and quality standards.
Launched July of 2013, in the US and Canada, hoopla already has over 1,300,000 registered users and adds between 60,000 - 70,000 new users each month. It is expected to launch in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand in 2017. This makes hoopla a new market opportunity for content owners and distributors as well as a fast-growing digital lending service for local libraries around the world.
ZOO President, Gordon Doran said: “ZOO is delighted to be able to deliver TV and movie content to the hoopla online lending library. Our partnership with hoopla reinforces our position as one of the few providers fully equipped to distribute to all the major online platforms quickly and cost-effectively while always maintaining outstanding quality.”
